The invitation has been stuck to your fridge for weeks. You’ve been looking forward to the event ever since you saw the invite in your mailbox. But you have a dilemma: what am I going to wear!? Many women have trouble picking the perfect outfit for the annual Fourth of July event that comes around every summer. It can be a daunting task finding a fashionable outfit that incorporates all colors signifying the good ol’ U S of A. Let’s be honest, it’s not every day that we find ourselves decked out in red, white, and blue. However, it most definitely can be done! Luckily, you can count on Ask Miss A to solve your dilemma and show you all the best looks so you walk into that party feeling (and looking) like a million bucks!






Look #1 Pool/Beach Party

A maxi dress, like this one from Free People, $198, is trendy, casual enough for this type of event, and loose so you’re not overwhelmed by the July heat. Add a white fedora like this one by Anthony Peto, $225, and you’ll fend off a sunburn and look fabulous.
